The Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies (CERES) at University of Toronto is accepting applications for the Petro Jacyk Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ukrainian Politics, Culture, and Society for the year 2013-2014. The objective of the Post-Doctoral Fellowship is to support on an annual basis one of the most promising junior scholars studying contemporary Ukraine and thereby to advance academic understanding of Ukrainian politics, culture, and society. The Fellowship is made possible by generous support of the Petro Jacyk Education Foundation.
The Fellowship has both research and teaching components. The successful candidate will spend most of the Fellowship period in residence at the University of Toronto, based at the Centre for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (CERES). While at CERES, the Fellow will be expected to devote his/her time to preparation of her/his dissertation for publication and/or to start a new research project. He/she is also expected to teach a one semester course (seminar or lecture) that deals with contemporary Ukraine (possibly from an interdisciplinary and/or comparative perspective). The Fellow will also be expected to spend a period of time in Ukraine (normally 4-6 weeks and preferably, but not necessarily, in May-June of the fellowship period) based at the National University of Kyiv–Mohyla Academy. The Centre will make one appointment for the calendar year of twelve months beginning July 2013.
The Fellowship is open to junior scholars in the social sciences and humanities with a teaching and research focus on contemporary Ukraine. The successful candidate must have completed his/her PhD not more than three years prior to the start of the fellowship period and before taking up the Fellowship. There are no restrictions with respect to citizenship.
The Fellowship holder will receive $40,000 Canadian funds plus an allowance for research and travel expenses.
